Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

The programme aims to develop knowledge, technical skills and self'directed learning skills in computing, especially in areas affected by rapidly changing information technology. Final'year students carry out a complex real'world computing project.

Modern computing and information system skills often become obsolete as new technology is developed. Therefore the programme strikes a balance between learning current skills, which are important in the marketplace, and emphasising the underlying theories, which last longer and which provide a sound basis for developing new skills, techniques and technologies, and even new theories. The social and organisational impacts of information technology are also included.
